Gigapede is a giant tapeworm-like demon which entered the Human world through a time-space rift. It possesses a strong exoskeleton that impedes enemy attacks, and can generate balls of lightning to deter foes.
The two Gigapedes found inside Leviathan do not need to be killed to proceed. It is possible simply to run away from them, as they will stop when they reach the membrane to the next chamber, blocking your way back. This method grants no Orb rewards. However, they can be killed for an amount of Red Orbs and a few Style points. Cerberus is especially useful here as it attacks quickly and has little recovery time after combos. It is also possible to kill them with firearms once they reach the membrane, although it will take some time.
The word "Gigapede" is a Portmanteau of "Giga" (Lat: "Giant") and either "Millipede" (Lat: "thousand feet") or "Centipede," (Lat: "hundred feet"). Together, the literal translation of the name is "giant foot".
